Both USB ports stopped communicating on my D600, they have power, my optical mouse still lights up, no device works on the ports, everything is fine in Device manager in Dual boot XP and W7. Checked the bios, not much in there for USB.
No usb device shows up when I use the F12 boot device menu either, so it must be some hardware issue.
I have another hard drive with Ubuntu on it, popped it in and USB does not communicate with it either.
Appears to have 5v but no communication, any Ideas besides another motherboard or USB card for the pcmcia slot (these don't work to well from my research)?
I mostly use them for mass storage devices and pcmcia slots don't supply enough power for these devices.
Thanks to all who answer with last ditch efforts. I hate to give up on it, its been good to me and still runs rather well for its vintage.
EDIT: I did inspect the ports with a flashlight and did a partial disassembly of the laptop in an attempt to check the solder joints, but would require complete motherboard removal to see them, that is where I stopped.
